hello, hello...

Just wanted to pop on to make a really quick post. James and I are officially two weeks away from our trip to PARIS! I am very excited and nervous all at the same time, and in a crazy way I am the most worried about what I am going to wear. Crazy right. Anyway, i stumbled upon this lovely spot and thought I would share it with you, http://www.griottes.fr. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, the images are lovely and inspiring. At some point there will be an English version, in the meantime I am using this as a sort of crash course on reading French. I am better at understanding written French than when it is spoken it seems. Really all I need to know is how to order a croissant or macaroon right?

On a crafty note, I am farming again and hope to have some pictures to show you in the coming days. I also tried my hand at sharpie tie dye. It was very easy and I am looking forward to more experimenting.

Sorry for the lack of pictures today, hope you enjoy your weekend.

Two in one day!


Can you believe two posts in just one day, it's just unheard of! Just wanted to post a group shot of all my farmers wife quilt blocks. I am trying to get back into the swing of two blocks a week, and have a new stack of fabrics waiting to be cut into.

So as usual it has been a really long time since my last post, I think that is just the way I do things, or I am just lazy! I have been up to a lot of things since the start of the new year. One of these things is taking Fergus to his weekly swim time.

My poor old dog, he will be 13 this year, has trouble walking around the block now. He really was getting depressed, lots of big sighs could be heard throughout the house. The sad part was that because of the arthritis in his front leg, walking on the concrete was just not possible. We found that when we would go to PEI in the summers he could swim for hours with very little limping and that he was just that much more happy. Luckily our vet told us about this swimming pool for dogs called "Fit Dogs" here in Toronto, so we gave it a shot. My old guys gets so excited now he is up and in the pool before we have a chance to throw the tennis ball. He is so happy and having dreams where his legs twitch like he is swimming.

It makes me so happy to see him swim in this indoor pool, it really is ridiculous!! So to try out my new toy with it's "super8" app here is my boy having a swim. Oh and the pool is heated and salt water, and way more clean than a lot of hotel pools we have been in.

Hope you enjoy this video as much as I do!
